Fish the Streams of Afognak Island, Alaska

Afognak Island is one of the jewels of the Kodiak Island chain, and one of its most prized characteristics is the gorgeous streams and estuaries tucked into the nooks of the island’s geography. Afognak features a wealth of beautiful locations perfect for freshwater fishing, and its remote nature means that not only are these fishing spots enjoyed by a small handful of people, but they’re also filled with delicious wild fish, ripe for the taking. Guests of our wilderness lodge will enjoy their fill of wilderness freshwater fishing, and the thriving local populations of Sockeye, Pink, & Silver Salmon alongside Rainbow, Steelhead, & Dolly Varden Trout mean almost every freshwater fishing trip ends with a full catch.

Saltwater Fishing in Kodiak

Freshwater fishing may be a favorite, but it’s far from our only water activity. Beyond the shores of Afognak, visitors will enjoy rich saltwater and open sea fishing, with a myriad of saltwater species ranging from giant halibut to delicacies like flounder, lingcod, red-snapper, sea bass, greenling, and so many more. And once you’ve had your fill of pole fishing? The fun isn’t over yet: you’ll find endless enjoyment digging for clams, harvesting mussels, and cockles, and even hunting octopus, and you can also explore the fascinating intertidal zone with its wealth of colorful and diverse inhabitants like starfish, sea urchins, periwinkles, and more.
